G.SKILL Ripjaw OC Help

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I currently have this RAM.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231445

All of the specs in my signature are up to date.

I seem to have trouble getting any timings lower than the 8-8-8-20 I currently have.

I've heard for AMD processors lower timing are more beneficial than higher MHz.

How should I go about achieving lower timings?
I assume just bump them down one by one and see how it goes? And lower the multiplier on the MHz?

I have the same board as you, but 1075T for CPU.

My timings were, 7-8-7-22-1T @ 1666 mhz, SDRAM Voltage @ 1.62 V
This is based on my clock rate of 250 mhz, with multiplier of 15, giving my CPU 3.75 ghz of overclock.

+4 to ur 20, then set to 2T and go from there.

Good luck!

The RAM you have absolutely sucks for overclocking. They won't do any tighter than stock, and they won't overclock very far over stock either (I've had mine as high as 1680 stable, any more they were unstable regardless of timings or volts).

I had the ripjaw; i thought ripjaw X is better. Can the mobo be the cause?

The blue Ripjaw X sticks (1600, 8-8-8-24), they suck. Don't know why, but they do. I've got 16GB of it.

Some of the other Ripjaw X sticks (red, black) are great and do nicely. Not sure about the other models of the blue sticks though, I think there's some 2133 blue ones that do okay.
